    They already fought and Weidman KO’d him.

    Or is Prime Anderson the one where he got tapped out by midget Japanese cans? Chris KO’s that version too

    Silva lost because of the wrestling threat from Weidman and Weidman's longer reach.

    Silva looked like he was playing around in there.....but that is what it is supposed to look like when you're a counter striker trying to get your opponent out of position....

    He was really keeping his hands low to better defend takedows while relying on his reflexes, footwork and distance to avoid strikes and set up counters.....

    It worked for him tons of times against fighters with shorter reach than him....but this was the first time he faced an excellent grappler with longer reach....

    Silva struggled against good grapplers. Look at the first fight against Sonnen.

    Which was an even bigger reason he kept his hands low.....Weidman was better at finishing fights on the ground than sonnen....

    People who followed Anderson's career saw him taking punches to the chin like they were nothing. That was gone by the time of the first Sonnen fight.

    If a fighter is 16 years into his pro career and 38 years of age it's safe to say he is not in his prime.

    I thought the comment was so naive or just stupid I didn't bother to acknowledge it. He was getting tagged by Stephen Bonnar of all people. He was long past it.
